YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE

Phil Collins said it best in song, “I need love, love, ooh to ease my mind.” And, “ You can’t hurry love. No, you’ll just have to wait. Love don’t come easy, but it’s a game of give and take.”

Isn’t that the truth for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After signing Andrew Wiggins, the number #1 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft yesterday, the Cavs will have to wait until August 23rd at the earliest, in order to add Love, as in Kevin Love, to their roster and maybe ease the mind of LeBron James.2014 NBA Draft

Due to NBA rules, the Cavs cannot trade Wiggins for 30 days after the signing of his rookie contract. So LeBron, Cavs G.M. David Griffin, T-Wolves head honcho Flip Saunders and NBA fans everywhere will have to wait and see if the most talked about trade this off season will come to fruition. If it does happen, will it be with the Cavs and will Wiggins will be in the deal? If not the Cavs, then does Love go to Chicago or Golden State and for whom?

Let’s say the Cavaliers end up winning the Kevin Love sweepstakes and it costs them Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and at least one first round draft pick along with other players/contracts(that’s the rumored deal that’s out there now). With Love on the roster it would make the Cavaliers starting line-up arguably one of the best, if not the best starting line-up in the NBA. But what would it do to the Cavaliers depth this season and in the future?

Here are the potential Cavs line-ups and depth charts with Love and without Love. You decide which roster you’d prefer to have.

With Kevin Love:

PG- Kyrie Irving, Matthew Dellavedova

SG- Dion Waiters, Joe Harris

SF- LeBron James, Mike Miller, James Jones

PF- Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Dwight Powell,

C- Andy Varejao, Brendan Haywood

 Without Kevin Love:

PG- Kyrie Irving, Matthew Dellavedova

SG- Andrew Wiggins, Dion Waiters, Joe Harris

SF- LeBron James, Mike Miller, James  Jones

PF- Tristan Thompson, Anthony Bennett, Dwight Powell

C- Andy Varejao, Brendan Haywood

Take your time in making your decision on which roster you would prefer because David Griffin and the Cavs can’t do anything for another month. As much as they would like to hurry Love to Cleveland, there’s still a lot of give and take that has to happen.

    I’m against trading for Love. I prefer keeping Wiggins and Bennett. We can win this year with the Kids. I still have fond memories back in 2007. Boobie Daniels was a rookie and he shot us into the finals, and another rookie Shannon Brown would’ve helped as well, but our coach at the time was too stupid to give him minutes. Shannon Brown went on to help Kobe win rings 4 and 5.

    Wiggins and Bennett are 100 times better prospects than Boobie and Shannon were.
